I like the second one, too!

Pardon me for being a newb but how do you take pictures into the sun without blinding yourself or damaging your camera?

Sunglasses and squinting - the sensor is only exposed for a fraction of a second - its not an issue most of the time
it can be uncomfortable though.

Thank you much, and exactly what Echo63 said, the real problem is getting the camera to AF when in the sun like this.. have to focus on the edge of the person, and not the face - not enough contrast in the face.

Lasers will damage your sensor, but the sun doesn't unless you expose for a long time.

I'm impressed by the proper lighting on the grass outside of the focus point. Not losing that to the sun glare / oversaturation was nicely done. Oh, and #2 FTW as well.

I think most any male can identify with these shots, and they're great - especially #2!

Love both of these but the first is my favorite. Just seems to capture a little boys sense of adventure!
